About

Hefty enameled solid aluminum framed passenger safety and information sign from Passenger Stateroom 139 on the Main deck of the SS United States. Four glass paned windows. Lower right window is a pull-out sign plate identifying that assigned to passengers of this cabin are Steward Allen Cobbs and Stewardess Jeannette Hunt. (Where are they now?) You can insert your own personalized message on this plate. SS United States United States Lines 1952 Built in 1952 for the United States Lines, SS United States is the largest ocean liner ever built entirely in the US. On her maiden voyage, she set the record for the fastest transatlantic crossing, making the voyage from New York Harbor to the United Kingdom in 3 days, 10 hours, and 40 minutes, and returning in 3 days, 10 hours, and 12 minutes. Her westbound crossing record is still unbroken. The SSUS carried celebrity passengers including Coco Chanel, Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, and John Wayne, not to mention four US Presidents. The clubby, Mid-Century Modern fittings and stylings, designed by ocean liner interior mavens Dorothy Marckwald and Anne Urquhart, were auctioned off in 1984.
